A gutless performance from Manchester United at home to Sevilla led them to being knocked out of the Champions League in the round of 16 on Tuesday. Substitute Wissam Ben Yedder scored twice as Sevilla stunned Manchester United 2-1 in the second leg of the last-16 tie at Old Trafford to advance to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
